Push Jacket

Early this year my sister went to see the movie Push, with Dakota Fanning and she came home raving about this jacket.


We found a front and back view of it on line and decided to copy it. We used wool flannel from Denver Fabrics, homemade black cotton bias tape, and extra large hooks and eyes. They are hard to see, but six of them run along the front edge for decoration.

It's been months since I finished it, but we finally had a photo shoot in an alley downtown.

This is so amazing! :) I love it.
The photos are cool too! What photo editor did you use?

Firstly - dying to see Push (not out in Australia until September 10th)

Secondly - this is the sort of thing that really gets my heart racing. How cool is that jacket?!?! Great job - really love the back pleats and the black bias around the neck/collar.

Anna~I used photoshop elements 5 to bump up the brightness so the bricks would stand out more.

Jenaveve~that must be a frustrating to have to wait for movies to make it to Australia.
